Chaos: The Harbinger Of Order

WHEN THE BANKS STOP LENDING and the dollar drops dead, the leonine principles of chaos will pounce upon us, claws poised, teeth bared. But as horrible as that bit of declarative sounds to the victims of chaos, there may still be a ray of sunshine for America and in turn, hope for humanity, and that hope is presented here in an adaptation of a wonderful comment by a reader at American Thinker in response to an article on The Coming Chaos.

John Griffing has stated the obvious and drawn a single conclusion among many possibilities—avoid default of the American debt crisis at all costs. Financial chaos because it cuts to the root of our sense of well-being can be and in most situations is really frightening. People suffer and die when money values go hiking off in many different directions at the same time. But one of the most unnerving problems with modern America is that no one has suffered recently and we are not sure that we can tolerate feelings like hunger and uncontrolled weather in our living rooms. Whole families would have to take to the roads with backpacks as winter approached like migrating birds.

Yet, I am not pessimistic. While Mr. Griffing is correct about bad things happening to good people, I am just as certain that "this too will pass." Why?

spend, spend, spend

Chicago Tribune, 1934. Sound familiar? Took a war to change things, then, too.

Because economic equilibrium will reassert itself. Chaos is too chaotic to last. Organization is an occasional, but natural state of affairs. We know this from the movies of the end of the world. Each time the world reaches a precipice, it draws back in horror. These movies will be our models. We may have to mimic the Amish or become members of a kibbutz, but with great buffalo meat in our bellies and mighty thunder in our throats we will survive as a people. Extra-privileged classes will have to disperse or reorganize to use less energy—like universities and governments, Hollywood and the NFL.

But physicist Stephen Hawking from the strength of his wheelchair has assured us that knowledge is never destroyed, but merely displaced. In the end we will be fine and the world will be at peace again. Bingo! Now I can go back to sleep and have a sweet dream untainted by reality! Tomorrow I will plant my winter collards and broccoli. If global warming doesn't get me first.

George Soros, Feds Seize Control of America’s Flooded Farmland

Severe_Weather_Flooding
Missouri levee break...

AMID THE CHAOTIC WEATHER SYSTEMS thus far in 2011, the federal government has twisted and exacerbated a natural catastrophe to victimize American farming families, while subsequently staging a land grab to further the UN’s Agenda 21 protocols, all at once. Despite record amounts of snowfall this past winter, the snowpack was measured and melted predictably. Yet the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers claimed to be surprised by the melt-water amounts. As a result, they planned to detonate the Birds Point levee in Missouri to prevent runoff water from devastating the town of Cairo, Ill. Bizarrely, the feds thought it more intelligent to flood 130,000 acres of rural farmland, and thus a necessary part of the food supply, than to affect an urban zone of 2,800 people, one-third of whom already live below the poverty level.

Detonated levees might bring the Ninth Ward of New Orleans to mind, and one might suspect the federal government was attempting to avoid another accusation of racism, classism and inaction. However, commodities broker Ann Barnhardt has revealed another possible scheme at work. She wrote on her website: “A Missouri farming and ranching contact just got off a conference call wherein he was informed that the federal government is sending out letters to all of the flooded farmers in the Missouri River flood plain notifying them that the Army Corps of Engineers will offer to buy their land.”

The Kansas City Star supports this claim, reporting that 17 Missouri families received a letter from the Army Corps of Engineers “offering to buy private land along the Missouri River for a wildlife conservation project. The letter was dated June 6, when floodwaters were beginning to rise.”

Later in the article, it was noted that “Karl Mueller, chief of civil works for the Army Corps’ Kansas City office, said the agency was not taking advantage of the flooding to buy farmland” and that the letters were a case of “unfortunate timing.” When asked if the government would be compensating them for losses, Ms. Barnhardt told this reporter: “Of course not. The feds are calling it an act of God.” Ms. Barnhardt also makes the stunning connection of George Soros and a company he is investing in called Ospraie Capital Management. It seems Ospraie is also buying farmland, and Soros’s investments have netted him control of “the third-largest grain company in the U.S., with 280 million bushels of storage capacity.”

The liberal Center for American Progress receives large donations from Soros. Plus, its former executive vice president for policy, Melody Barnes, was recently named to the White House Rural Council.

According to a popular news website, The Blaze, this council “makes recommendations to the president on streamlining and leveraging federal investments in rural areas to increase the impact of federal dollars and create economic opportunities to improve the quality of life in rural America.” The group’s staffers also “coordinate federal efforts directed toward the growth and development of geographic regions that encompass both urban and rural areas” which, The Blaze states, “sounds very similar to the language found in the UN plan for sustainable cities known as Agenda 21.”

Ms. Barnhardt says, “This is about driving everything toward a Marxist utopia. They are attempting to control the food supply and are seeking to make private agricultural banking virtually impossible by forcing all agricultural lending through the USDA and the government.”

Oi! Oi! Oi!

THERE IS A REASON we do not develop our own energy resources...they are being held as collateral for our massive debts held by foreign countries. When we default you will see Chinese oils workers, miners, and other energy related workers showing up in the USA. They will live in separate autonomous communities apart from us, just like they are doing in Africa.

We are destined to be a resource of the Chinese with our population being irrelevant. In order to create a new world order, the largest pool of free thinking people has to be destroyed.

If you think me insane, look to Iraq. The Chinese are drilling for oil there, the USA is not. We have given them the oil as long as they give us loans. The government, Republicans and Democrats alike, have sold us out. Look on line to find the transcript of the speech given by Chinese General Chi Haotian to see the future the Chinese envision for us.

That's an interesting take on things. But man, does it make me say ouch! I wonder how a President Palin, or a President Trump, God help us, might supercede this arrangement.

Pseudo-Intellectual Hit Piece Emblematic Of Crumbling Elitist Media

THE NEW YORK MAGAZINE'S JOE HAGAN has done his level best to ingratiate himself with leftist media elites by championing Cass ‘ban free speech’ Sunstein as part of a smear piece on Alex Jones that recycles the same tired old clichés in a bid to make deluded intellectuals feel more comfortable about sticking their heads in the sand while a malevolent global elite that Hagan is intent on proving doesn’t exist masterminds America’s downfall.

Ah yes, THAT Cass Sunstein, the most dangerous man in America according to Glenn Beck. Not that I don't suspect he's a really nasty unAmerican type, but unless Obama gets that second term, or oversees the explosion of a few American cities just before the November polls and martial law, Sunstein may not get to implement his pernicious plan to dismantle the First Amendment.

Scary stuff. Entitled, A Strange Man Is Following You, Hagan's article seeks to dismiss concerns about the Bilderberg Group, the Federal Reserve and the orchestrated economic collapse by characterizing Alex Jones as a paranoid crank who spouts paranoia for profit while inspiring mass shooters like Jared Loughner.

It's astounding to me that this lone wicked Loughner fellow continues to prowl the liberal mind, the able stooge for whatever ails the liberal forces, but then the Left is trying its best to ignore the fact that he was one of their own, as evidenced in his own fragmented writings.

According to Jones, Hagan spent the entire interview trying to get Alex to admit that he yearns and grovels for a show on Fox News. an important set up for Hagan’s final slap down when he quotes Fox News programming executive vice-president Bill Shine who states, “That’s not going to happen, so he should stick with trying to locate the black helicopters.”

In reality, Jones spent the whole discussion pointing out that Fox News is just the right-wing pillar of the crumbling corporate media, and that he had no interest in compromising his message merely to emulate the likes of Glenn Beck. But this answer didn’t jive with Hagan’s approach to the entire hit piece at the outset, which was structured around convincing the kind of pseudo-intellectuals who read New York Magazine that they should ignore Jones’ message because he represents little more than a ranting Glenn Beck wannabe.

By using sophomoric throwaway jibes and drive-by sound bites, Hagan attempts to reduce the exhaustively documented depopulation agenda down to paranoid drivel.

And he probably mocks Facebook as juvenile. True intelligence is that which recognizes patterns, complex patterns, patterns which reveal enough information for the plotting of accommodation or survival strategies. Language is mere wordsuck. Writers, mere moths to a flame. What us flutter in flight...

As we have exhaustively proven, the population reduction agenda is deeply rooted in the eugenics movement which began amongst the aristocracy in 19th century Britain and later manifested itself under the banner of Hitler’s Third Reich. As is documented in Alex Jones’ seminal film Endgame, Rockefeller’s father, John D. Rockefeller, exported eugenics to Germany from its origins in Britain by bankrolling the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute which later would form a central pillar in the Third Reich’s ideology of the Nazi super race.

After falling out of favor as a consequence of Hitler’s embrace of the pseudo-science, eugenics was then reborn in the United States in the 1950′s under the umbrella of “family planning”.

All this is documented in our article, The Population Reduction Agenda For Dummies.

We questioned establishment media spin which portrayed the attendees as kind-hearted and concerned philanthropists by pointing out that Ted Turner has publicly advocated shocking population reduction programs that would cull the human population by a staggering 95%. He has also called for a Communist-style one child policy to be mandated by governments in the west. In China, the one child policy is enforced by means of taxes on each subsequent child, allied to an intimidation program which includes secret police and “family planning” authorities kidnapping pregnant women from their homes and performing forced abortions.

Of course, Ted Terrific completely fails to follow his own rules on how everyone else should live their lives, having five children and owning no less than 2 million acres of land.

In the third world, Turner has contributed literally billions to population reduction, namely through United Nations programs, leading the way for the likes of Bill & Melinda Gates and Warren Buffet (Gates’ father has long been a leading board member of Planned Parenthood and a top eugenicist).

Well, BIG money DOES have its privileges. And they can prove it.

The understanding that the elite have been obsessed with population control and eugenics for hundreds of years is a matter of historical fact, but Hagan hastily dismisses the whole notion in his myopic pursuit to portray Jones as an eccentric opportunist.

These hacks cannot tolerate a free marketplace of ideas, so they have to try and strangle independent voices. It would be tragic if it were not so dangerous.

With the sands of the media landscape shifting as distrust in authorities plays itself out in terms of audience share, establishment entities are becoming increasingly frightened about the fact that they, as Hillary Clinton recently acknowledged, are “losing the information war,” and are increasingly lashing out at Jones in the form of hit pieces as they try and devise more sophisticated methods through which to silence the alternative press.

This is where Obama information czar Cass Sunstein comes into the equation. In his article, Hagan lauds Sunstein as the man with the plan to stop the likes of Jones from gaining any more media traction. Hagan seamlessly throws disturbed, skull-worshipping mass shooter Jared Loughner into the mix, implying that Sunstein’s efforts to stop the spread of conspiracy theories are commendable because they can prevent the Loughners of this world from being influenced by “information cascades on the Internet” that leave psychologically unstable people, “unable to distinguish fact from fiction.”

We heard about the skulls, but did he really worship them? The media does tend to whip out this "ghastly" cliche far too often to convince me that this particular bad guy's fascination with skulls was anything more than an aesthethic impulse. Does the skull and crossbones flag of the old European flag indicate that these sailors worshipped skull imagery? What about the youthful Steven Jobs, who hoisted the pirate flag above the Apple campus in the early days of the computer wars? No? Didn't think so. Let's face it, nearly all chippy writers fling arrows to make their point, no matter how frivolous the kill.

Hagan’s implication is thinly veiled—so-called “conspiracy theorists” like Alex Jones are creating legions of violent lunatics who will act out violently as a backlash against the paranoid world view with which Jones has brainwashed them, unless of course the likes of Sunstein are empowered to combat this growing threat.

What Hagan chooses not to mention is the fact that Sunstein also wrote of his desire to ban free speech, while advocating a myriad of deceptive, completely unethical and borderline illegal ‘cointelpro’ style methods with which to crush the alternative media.

On page 14 of Sunstein’s January 2008 white paper entitled “Conspiracy Theories,” the man who is now Obama’s head of information technology in the White House proposed that each of the following measures “will have a place under imaginable conditions” according to the strategy detailed in the essay.

1) Government might ban conspiracy theorizing.
2) Government might impose some kind of tax, financial or otherwise, on those who disseminate such theories.

One of the examples Sunstein gives of what would be banned under this new thought police regime is skepticism of man-made global warming, a belief shared by the majority of the American people.
Sunstein even characterizes as “false and dangerous” the idea that exposure to sunlight is healthy, despite the fact that top medical experts agree prolonged exposure to sunlight reduces the risk of developing certain cancers.

We soon begin to unravel the fact that Sunstein’s idea of a “conspiracy theory” is anything that disagrees with the establishment orthodoxy.

Along with a host of other clichés, Hagan’s article also makes generous use of the pejorative term, “conspiracy theory,” which has come to symbolize the disguise behind which control freaks like him and Sunstein hide their feverish contempt for the freedom to dissent against the myriad of real “conspiracy theories” cultivated and circulated by mainstream media such as:

a. weapons of mass destruction
b. humanitarian wars
c. troubled asset relief programs

The final goal, and one that Hagan evidently embraces, as Sunstein makes clear on page 20 of his paper, is outright government control of public discourse.

“We could imagine circumstances in which a conspiracy theory became so pervasive, and so dangerous, that censorship would be thinkable,” Sunstein writes. In Sunstein and Hagan’s world, disagreeing with the dogma of man-made global warming would be classed as heresy and subject to state censorship, a prospect far more alarming than anything that could be attributed to “conspiracy theorists”.

Hagan’s piece is symptomatic of the trend we are now seeing unfold in American media. With both the establishment left and the establishment right losing their audience to people like Alex Jones, both are busy trying to use Jones as a tool with which to demonize the other.

People like Hagan need to ingratiate themselves amongst the liberal media aristocracy by smearing independent voices that threaten that elite like Alex Jones because they know the peanut gallery is getting increasingly smaller, and it’s the same for those on the right.

While people on the right like Glenn Beck dream up vast conspiracies run by 9/11 truthers to discredit the establishment left, leftist groups like Media Matters simultaneously cite Jones’ advocacy of 9/11 to demonize Beck. Both the establishment left and the establishment right feed off each other, and without that parasitical relationship, they would both cease to exist.

In the meantime, people who just want the truth are tuning out, and like Hillary Clinton conceded, are turning off the likes of MSNBC and Fox News and flipping over to Russia Today, or God forbid— the Alex Jones Show.

Yes, the truth, the birth certificate, the college records, friendships fresh out of hiding, a believable paper trail, Islam unmasked, ah wouldn't that be nice...

Why the Media Blackout On New Energy Breakthrough?

CHEAPER ELECTRICITY OUGHT TO BE a topic of interest, you might think. But because the media is pushing uneconomical "green" technologies, you probably haven't heard of the discoveries which promise to make electricity generated by natural gas cheaper.

Since 1992 the U.S. DOE has "invested" hundreds of millions of dollars into clean-burning, efficient "combined cycle" natural gas turbines made by GE and Westinghouse to power dynamos in central electricity generation stations.

GE? I saw these massive generators being built for South American installations in person at a General Electric Jacksonville, FL plant. A very clever highschool friend whom I was visiting at the time, built these awesome generators. I was impressed. Hamfisted and dreamy-eyed myself, I'd always considered Freddy Wilson a bona fide mechanical genius (after his dad), and now he was clearly proving how far he had come since taking apart every nut, bolt, spring, belt, and thingamajig rusted stubbornly into a 1960s AMC Rambler to then scrape, clean, drill, bore out, reshear, repaint, and finally reassemble a shiny spanking hot muscle rider whose poor white walls only lasted three, four weeks, month after month, until he would eagerly move on to another mechanical post-scholastic feat. He took a job at the Jax plant right out of highschool. Twenty years later he was still there, shop steward, I heard. With the woes and wranglings GE has experienced the last decade or so I would guess my friend has retired or has started a second career, tweaking some knuckle-skinning machine I'd wager.

But why is GE and Jeffrey Immelt now siding up to wind mills and disregarding this proven, more robust, and yes, clean technology?

Anthropomorphic Climate Change: A Hoax By Any Other Name

Ukraine pollution, Ukraine industry
Ukraine Pollution
NAME THAT TREND. Catastrophic Climate Disruption. Anthropogenic Global Warming. Man-Caused Climate Change. The Hoax that couldn't shoot straight. Al Gore's Ticket To Ride. The worst part of all this mayhem is in the whole of geological history we know there really are climate CYCLES.

They are periodic and can be loosely predicted. There are cycles within cycles—so that within a 90 year major cooling cycle you will have a lesser 45 year warming cycle and a lesser 45 year warming cycle, but the overall trend is still one of cooling. I wish we had graphics here—picture two circles, touching so that they look like a plump figure 8 on its side. One represents 90 years of coolong, the other 90 years of warming. Within each is another figure 8 representing 45 year cycles. Within those are figure 8s of roughly 11 year cycles.

"I saw this diagram in a popular magazine back in 1985 0r '86—written by a scientist—I have been unable to find it again, but I sure remember it."

There is abundant data showing these cycles are tied to the sun's cyclic activity and sun spots. The sun is the planet's major source of energy.

Because 45 and 11 year cycles fall within normal human lifespans, many people notice temperature patterns when they stop to think about them—like the ten years in the late 60s-early 70s when Ann Arbor, MI had little or no snow (it sure ended when we moved there and had to buy a snowblower for our tractor.) Farmers and ranchers are particularly sensitive to these patterns as they have to plan ahead. Honest scientific research and data gathering has documented these cycles into prehistoric times.

We find it reprehensible that James Hansen at NASA turns a blind eye to this truth along with many other scientists. There is no way human activity caused past climate cycles and this can be extrapolated into the future. It is Anthropomorphic Climate Change that is the lie. The more honest truth is that human activity can and does cause messes in the form of regional pollution and combustible garbage, easily recognized, well-documented and fixable.

This Anthropomorphic Climate Change scam is keeping folks from buckling down in cleaning up our regional nests and preparing for some real weather challenges, which may or may not occur exactly as partisan experts predict. Scientists of this order have left their original calling in becoming the henchmen of government ideologues. Sadly, these environmental hijinx are happening in conjunction with the US and global economies being destroyed by greedy governments preparing to cash in on new industries they have incentivized.

Make No Mistake About It

THE UNITED STATES MUST CHECK ITS SENTIMENTALITY at the door, shake loose of the leftist solipsisms and get down to the mature and necessary business of clarifying our geo-political relationships across the globe. Again we must consider the Red China redux.

Militarily: Restore the military's inventories of weapons to sufficient levels, replace obsolete weapons (with F-35s, Virginia class subs, etc.), and equip the U.S. military to protect the U.S. and its allies against Communist China. This must include a national missile defense system capable of intercepting all Chinese missiles, cyber defenses, and modernized minesweepers. Congress should also refuse to reduce total defense spending. America's global military deployments should be reconsidered and realigned with the 21st-century threat environment.

Economically: Protect the American industry with strict product quality standards and export-import certificates to end America's large annual trade deficits. Also reform the tax code to prevent corporations from fleeing abroad (e.g., to China); abolish all bans on drilling for oil and natural gas to ensure plentiful, cheap energy for the U.S. economy; and reopen America's mines of rare-earth minerals.

Diplomatically: Strive for good relations with China's neighbors, recognize their territorial claims rather than China's, and establish an Asian NATO to bring America's Asian allies and partners together against China and North Korea. Sell weapons to China's foes.

Morally: Speak out for Chinese dissidents and label the criminal Chinese regime as such. Link Sino-American relations to China's human rights record. Ronald Reagan did so throughout the 1980s: he recognized the USSR as an evil empire, publicly called it such, and used the moral lever to win the struggle against the Soviet Union. Today's American officials should do the same vis-à-vis China, the new Evil Empire.
